Erma Louise Bombeck was an American humorist who achieved great popularity for her newspaper column that described suburban home life from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s. She published around 15 books, most of which became bestsellers. She wrote over 4,000 newspaper columns, using broad and sometimes eloquent humor, chronicling the ordinary life of a midwestern suburban housewife. Her columns were read twice-weekly by 30 million readers of the 900 newspapers in the U.S. and Canada.
